Drive-by jihadi pleads guilty to shooting at Pentagon
By Warren Richey, Staff writer / January 26, 2012

An Alexandria, Va., man admitted in federal court Thursday that he fired live rounds into the Pentagon and three other government buildings and planned to desecrate graves at Arlington National Cemetery in support of Islamic militants overseas.

Yonathan Melaku pleaded guilty to damaging government property, discharging a firearm during a crime of violence, and attempting to damage a veterans’ memorial.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, prosecutors will request a 25-year prison sentence. In addition, Mr. Melaku faces up to $750,000 in fines and restitution of $111,215.98 for the damage he caused to buildings and windows.

US District Judge Bruce Lee accepted Melaku’s plea and set sentencing for April 27 in federal court in Alexandria.


It is narrated by Melaku: “That’s a military building and that’s the building I’m going to be targeting.… Last time I hit them, they turned off the lights for like … four or five days.… Punks!”

I'd prefer they'd just turn him loose ~ tell us the time and place.

He shot in my direction at least once on his little night time trips and I deserve to get something out of it.

It just ain't right this punk gets room and board and free ham sammiches in jail for 25 years.
